Improvement ideas
  • Conduct a targeted blitz to ask all patients over 65 about influenza vaccination.
  • Use Pen CAT4 to pull a list of patients over 65 who have not had a flu vaccination in the past 15 months and send an SMS or email reminder to encourage them to book in for a flu shot.
  • Use additional Pen CAT4 filters to identify harder to reach groups in your clinic (for example: speakers of languages other than English) and consider how you might be able to reach them.
